Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter got married yesterday, Valentine's Day. The actors, who became engaged in November and last month announced that they're expecting their first child, tied the knot at the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul on the Isle of Wight in England.

Wedding guests are said to have included the groom's Sherlock co-star, Andrew Scott, who plays the villain Moriarty. Tom Hiddleston is also rumoured to have been among those present. The Telegraph reports that fans waited in the rain outside the 12th-century church, hoping to catch a glimpse of the newlyweds, but the wedding party kept things very private, with tight security.

According to The Isle of Wight County Press Office, a reception followed at Mottistone Manor, which is adjacent to the church. Benedict also reportedly spent Friday night at the Royal Yacht Squadron, a prestigious yacht club in Cowes. Sounds like a classy, old-fashioned bachelor's party, huh? A big congratulations to the happy couple!
